Below the is the first official plot synopsis for next summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness. This could definitely be considered a little spoilery, so read at your in risk!

Plot Synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
What does it all mean? A threat from within Starfleet certainly sounds like maybe Gary Mitchell? (He was a Starfleet officer!) Or maybe it’s the WRATH OF KHAN’S FRIEND. Or, even more bonkers, what if that little parasite Nero dropped in Captain (now Admiral) Pike’s mouth is really one of those little creepy aliens from the Next Generation episode “Conspiracy?” Yeah, remember these guys?
Or maybe it’s just the earworms from Wrath of Khan; controlling everyone like zombies and Cumberbatch has the master control panel. Okay. Okay. Chime in with your theories below!
